Barry Levinson‘s adaptation of the Philip Roth novel casts Pacino as an actor with a flatlining career and sense of hope. “Why don’t you get me a deal writing my memoirs? Isn’t that what washed-up actors do?” he asks his agent. And when he has a mishap onstage during King Lear, he discovers, “I’m having trouble separating a scene from a play with real life.”
Between trying to perfect a post-faceplant moan and suggesting getting his money back after he kills himself, he crosses his paths with a family friend and fangirl played by Greta Gerwig — for better or for worse.
The Humbling hits theaters and VOD on Jan. 23, 2015.
